Traditional fish dishes, friendly service. Try the starters!! Very affordable and not a tourist trap like the restaurants on the other side of the street.

Good food but extremely uncomfortable pushy service. The staff seemed desperate to maximise the bill rather than respect our wishes for a quiet dinner and allow us to calmly choose what we wanted. A second bottle of wine was opened despite us not requesting it, so we had to refuse it once opened. In general, unclear pricing resulted in a... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here on our last night in Porto. It was well worth the Metro ride out there. As soon as we walked in, we were welcomed by the owner and his staff and instantly felt welcome. He presented the fresh seafood and fish of the day. The menu was very flexible and they were eager...

When we came in and asked for crab, they waiter said they were all out but said he will go get some at the market (which is very close so the seafood... More

Do not hesitate to go to this restaurant if you want to eat perfeçtly fresh seafood served by a pleasant waiter. The boss is a french-speaker who do not hesitate to recommend you not the highest price but the best value for a bottle of wine. For 2 starters, 2 grilled octopusses, 1 bottle of wine, 2 coffees = 60€... More

We came here for a Saturday night meal and loved it. The staff took us to their baskets of fresh seafood and we just pointed to everything that we wanted. The food came out very quick, service was great and everything (crab, prawns, octupus, claims, mussels, bread and wine) tasted amazing! As read on TripAdvisor, soup was delicious. For everything,...
